Helping Others

When you hold doors open, pick up trash or donate to something that matters to you, you're inspiring your children to care too.

And recognizing kids for taking caring actions makes them more likely to make safe choices. 

Look for chances to give back to the community at local churches, soup kitchens, community parks, food & clothing donations at local stores, and much more!  

And if you have older kids, here are a few local organizations that offer volunteer opportunities for anyone over 13 years old!
